    The exodus of weekly comps... 16th Feb 18 at 8:27 PM
    So many brands ran competitions on certain days of the week, and many have since disappeared-
    *Hobbs on a Monday (FB)
    *Dorothy Perkins Friday-Sunday (choose your own prize)(TW)
    *Soletrader Friday (TW) (FB)
    *Wallis (choose your prize) TW FB(now replaced with Wallis Wednesday)
    * Boden (FB) Wednesday-Friday (only now and again now for the 'adult' one)
    *Argos Friday fasttrack comp (TW, FB)
    *Country Attire (TW)


    So any other weekly comps that have disappeared in the last few years? any you miss?

    TOP MONEYSAVING TIP

    Make your own Pot Noodles using a flower pot, sawdust and some old shoe laces. Pour in boiling water, stir then allow to stand for two minutes before taking one mouthful, and throwing away. Just like the real thing!

    *Asda Freebie Friday (TW) I won one of their comps, the prize was about 120-150 worth of Lego. They had some pretty good prizes.
